My Program:
I am largely calorie counting and making a note of everything I eat. I combine this with a lot of the principles of the Paul McKenna method of weight loss and combine this with my own ideas. I try to eat small and regularly too which seems to help.

My road to health is also a continuous learning curve where I maintain lots of information I gather in here. This place can really work if you want it to and the backing I have from my on-line friends is little short of priceless.

Personal Information:
I live in a small picturesque village with 400 other inhabitants here in North Devon, in the South West of the UK between Dartmoor and Exmoor. I teach Piano and violin and compose music when I am not performing sometimes with and sometimes without my eldest son who plays trumpet (Jazz and Latino)

Takes you onto his performance site. One of his performances I have as a vlog in here too.
My compositions number a couple of hundred consisting
of a large amount of educational piano pieces, Symphonic suites and concertos for Bassoon, Oboe, Flute & Marimba. There are over 50 pieces for brass band, songs and a full requiem mass.

I am also married and have been to the same person (Jane) for over 24 years have three children who are all following their own dreams and desires. Their images are all in here in among my pictures.

I can be contacted by my email which is:

tjwmusic@yahoo.co.uk

Other Information:
I enjoy vegetarian cookery. I play snooker and am into landscape and surreal photography. Some of my work can be seen on my blogs entitled "Trev's Motivations" and "SPARKWORLD & some of my photography.

I am a very keen West Ham United football supporter and enjoy the French lifestyle and culture.

I also enjoy art and have studied the Mancunian Artist L.S. Lowry fairly extensively.

I am a very keen storywriter and have written a fair amount of poetry. As of present there are several hundred poems to my name and this number continues to grow on a monthly basis. Two of my poetic idols are Spike Milligan and Pam Ayres.

This is the wonder: that of all the days of the year, the most important one is the everyday.

The everydays that are the most days of the year. These, the most days of our lives.

I think about these everydays that have me taking sun-dried sheets in off the line

or shoveling snow, these are the important days.

Everydays when I trip over excited little dogs

and the laundry mounts into its very own range and I finally think of something to make for dinner

when the head's weary tired and a wonderful aroma fills the air. All this.

This is the sacred everyday.
I can miss it. How holy the moments are.
How do we find ways to somehow live awake to the astonishing, ordinary wonder of all this?
How do we find ways to somehow live so that everyday is consecrated?

We must find ways.
For the ways we live our everydays is the way we live our lives.
Psalm 105:1
Give thanks to the Lord and proclaim his greatness.
Let the whole world know what He has done.


and thanks for the everydays that you make into holidaze in my life with your wonderful music!

"As you look back on the year gone by, think of missed opportunities not with regret, but as a reminder of what you learned that you can use to seize the opportunities ahead."

Best Wishes for 2015.
